Hi all,
I have gimp and cups running on my box. From gimp, all I need to do is
go to the option and select the (cups based) printer I want and off it 
goes. I actually did this yesterday with no problem. 
Photo quality printing and all that I havent been able to test/use yet, but I 
should in the near future. The comments about the
right driver and using any of the several options in Gimp's print
dialog would seem spot on

When installing Cups, I remember seeing some instructions relating to
being able to print from GIMP... ah
yes, /usr/ports/print/cups-base/pkg-message: 
PLEASE NOTE: ============

To enable printing under Gimp do the following:
1) Uncomment application/octet-stream line in mime.types
2) Uncomment application/octet-stream line in mime.convs
3) Restart cupsd

I don't particularly remember doing this... 

if everything in your system matches this, let me know what other info you want 
and I'm happy to share it.

good luck,
